Lutheran Chapel in Paluküla

Visited: June 14, 2014

Lutheran Chapel in Paluküla is a pretty interesting church in ruins.

The church was built in 1802, as a burial chapel for the Ungern-Sternberg family, and it is awaiting renovation.

The church is built on the edge of the Kärdla meteor crater. The crater is mostly filled in, but you can still see the ridge created in the area by the impact.
